: BNSF (NYSE:BNI)
: Price on April 9, 2001 = $29.10 per share
: Price on April 8, 2004 = $32.21 per share
: Dividends = 9 X $0.12 + 3 X $0.15 = $1.53
: Change in value = $3.11 + $1.53 = 5.3% + 10.7% = 15.9%
:
: UP (NYSE:UNP)
: Price on April 9, 2001 = $55.01 per share
: Price on April 8, 2004 = $57.05 per share
: Dividends = 6 X $0.20 + 3 X $0.23 + 2 x $0.30 = $2.49
: Change in value = $2.04 + $2.49 = 3.7% + 4.5% = 8.2%

If you had bought then:

4/9/04 2/3/06
UNP 57.05 85.67 +50%
BNI 32.21 78.75 +144%
NSC was in the low $20's now it's at $49+.
I regret buying only 100 shares each.
